Saddle up, y’all because the legendary band Alabama will celebrate their 50th year in the country music industry by announcing a new tour in 2019!
The Grammy-winning band consists of Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry, and Jeff Cook. The trio formed Alabama in 1969 in Fort Payne, Alabama. And from then on, they dominated country sound in the 1980s. Alabama had since become a staple in the industry. They produced dozens of massive hits, including “Moving Mountains” and “Dixieland Delight.”
This marks more than a year after their founding member Cook announced that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Cook announced his diagnosis back in 2017. And, he expressed that because of the disease, it would limit his time touring with the band. But it’s good news to us fans to see him in high spirits, as he will be joining his band mates in the new tour.
The all-star lineup that will tour with the beloved band includes Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Oak Ridge Boys, Restless Heart, Chris Janson, Tracy Lawrence, and Exile.
The kickoff will begin on the 10th of January, 2019. A great way to start the year! We wish Cook will be well during the laps of the tour and we wish the best for Alabama!
